UFC fighter Conor McGregor on Monday called President Trump “quite possibly” the greatest president of all-time while wishing the U.S. a happy Martin Luther King Day.
“Phenomenal President,” McGregor tweeted to his 8 million followers in response to a tweet from Trump. McGregor included an icon of a goat, which in sports circles means the “Greatest of All Time”, or “GOAT”.
“Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him,” McGregor, 31, added. “No easy feet (sic). Early stages of term also. Incredible. Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America.”
The tweet was responding to a Trump tweet earlier that day that was celebrating his three years in office while touting low unemployment numbers for African-Americans in recognizing Martin Luther King Day.
“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office,” Trump wrote to his 73 million followers. “So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”
